To setup a Cisco router as TFTP server

On the router to be server:
RouterA(config)#tftp-server flash:c2800nm-advipservicesk9-mz.124-16.bin

NO / after flash: !

On the client you can now copy.

Another test:
RouterA(config)#do copy run flash:test1
RouterA(config)#tftp-server flash:test1

RouterB#copy tftp flash
Address or name of remote host []?
Source filename [c2800nm-advipservicesk9-mz.124-16.bin]? test1
Destination filename [test1]?
Accessing tftp://…
Loading test1 from (via Serial0/0/1): !
[OK – 4037 bytes]

4037 bytes copied in 0.808 secs (4996 bytes/sec)


To do this across an interface: increase the serial speed!
RouterA(config-if)#clock rate 1000000
-> now becomes T1 speed!
14627 bytes/sec

RouterA(config)#ip scp server enable

RouterE#copy running-config scp:
Address or name of remote host []?
Destination username [RouterE]? netadmin
Destination filename [routere-confg]? test2
Writing test2
3555 bytes copied in 4.244 secs (838 bytes/sec)
